Set up in 2005, we are a small group administered by Parwich Memorial Hall’s Management Committee. Initially we ran under the auspices of Derbyshire Film who provided loan equipment and backup for emerging local film groups. But we would not have got started without the initiative from the Memorial Hall Committee, and their underwriting any potential loss. Fortunately there was not a loss.
Now we have monthly film showings, though it is also possible to arrange one off showings for particular groups, for example in late 2007 we had a special screening of Bambi for Parwich Primary School, and a special screening of ‘Amazing Grace’ as part of the Local History Society and Church’s ‘Slavery Season’.
In both the 2005/2006 and 2006/07 seasons we received sponsorship from both Parwich & District Horticultural Society and Parwich & District Local History Society. This money helped us get going and help demonstrate community support when we applied for funding.
In 2006 a grant from the Awards for All Lottery Fund enabled us to buy our own projection equipment and screen. Headphones are available for the partially deaf or hearing impaired. Other user groups of the Memorial Hall, with appropriate training, can also use this equipment to show DVDs, videos and project such as Power Point presentations from a computer (groups or individuals using this last option will need to provide their own computer).
Our regular film showings are under an MPLC umbrella licence which means we can not advertise the film title to the general public or charge for entry. However if you want us to email you details of upcoming films contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our regular Film Nights are held at the Memorial Hall (usually, but not always on the second Friday of the month), all are welcome, admission is free, there is a raffle and refreshments are available. Headphones are available on request at each showing. The evenings are staffed by a small but committed group of volunteers, but more help either organising the film showings or preparing the refreshments is always welcome (if you want to be involved, speak to Arnold Chadfield or Martin Compton or email us on email@example.com).
